Having missed two box reviews during my blogging break, I was extra excited to receive My Little Box August this morning! Upon opening the box, a splash of vivid colour and fun prints dazzled in front of me. This month’s theme, ‘Wild Summer’, gave me the energy boost I so badly needed! On top of this, the theme celebrates the meaning behind prints, bringing a feel of power and elegance.
My Little Box- Lifestyle and Fashion
To kick off this month, subscribers were treated to a cute ‘Good Vibrations’ art card (perfect to keep hold of for blogging accessories later on). There was also a puzzle card with lots of facts and history, giving a bit of background on the inspiration of this box.
One of my favourite items this month was the geometric jewellery holder. This hangs conveniently on the wall/in your wardrobe. I have needed one of these for ages, and I’m a little obsessed with the geometric trend, so this is perfect! Continuing with the jewellery theme, I unwrapped a lovely necklace. This isn’t my usual style, but the colour is gorgeous and I can’t wait to pair it with a jumpsuit!
My Little Box- Beauty
The beauty items this month had me super excited. I had been starting to read reviews where people were repeatedly given hand creams, so was worried the same would happen to me. But the three beauty gifts this month didn’t disappoint!
First up was a handy Batiste hairspray, which I have never tried before (I know). Then my favourite brand at the moment- Bare Minerals (along with a 20% off voucher).
I can’t wait to try this serum, which aims to empower, replenish, renew and fortify through morning and evening use. Watch this space! Finally, a lovely My Little Beauty blush, which promises to suit a range of skin tones. It is lovely and creamy and seemed to colour match really well with my skin. Again, watch this space!
All in all, I am really happy with the contents of this box and can’t wait for next month! I do hope that they include a few more items next month, although the high quality may be the reason for fewer items this month. Have you subscribed to My Little Box? What was your favourite item? I’d love to read your comments, and remember to check out my other posts on Everything Emilie!
